Foxborough, Mass. • The owners of the New England Patriots say their efforts to raise money for a fund to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombings have netted $617,000.

The number is significant because 617 is Boston's telephone area code.

The Kraft family, who also owns the New England Revolution soccer team, said the day after the attacks that left three dead that they would match the first $100,000 raised for the One Fund Boston through their charitable foundation. The team reached that in three days. Since then, the NFL, the NFL and MLS players unions, as well as tenants of the Patriot Place shopping center next to Gillette Stadium have added to the fund.

The One Fund Boston had raised more than $25 million as of Friday morning.
